Caution! Low Hanging Fruit

I'm joining Tabletop Tuesday over at Marty's A Stroll Through Life,
come join the party!

It's not too late to pretty up your holiday table.


The latest crop of lemons is ripening in the late Fall sunshine.

If you've never seen a lemon tree up close,
be careful where you reach, the thorns are wicked!

This vintage tablecloth fits right in with the lemon harvest, with it's soft muted Fall colors.
